The E. Paul Catts Memorial Lecture was initiated in 1997, one year to the week after his untimely death on April 5, 1996. A fund drive was initiated and the lectureship was endowed in 2001. Major contributors included Ann B. Catts, Elizabeth Beers and Frank Peryea , and John and Ruth Brown. The lecture is intended to honor excellence in communicative skills. Paul was an excellent teacher, public speaker, and artist.
